2012-10-10 Want a career in Agriculture or Health or both? ENROL NOW!

Scholarships available

The Graduate Certificate in Agricultural Health and Medicine H522 aims to address the drought of agricultural health knowledge and improve service delivery and professional understanding for farming communities – your communities.

By studying Agricultural Health and Medicine (as a post graduate course or a single unit) you will become part of the next generation of agricultural and health leaders (nurses, doctors, veterinarians, farmers and agricultural professionals) who understand cross- sector collaboration and can make a difference in rural communities.

Farm men, women, agricultural workers and their families are slowly gaining an awareness of the health, wellbeing and safety issues, but we can’t do it without YOU being part of the change!

In February 2013, the core unit of Agricultural Health and Medicine HMF701  will be offered as a five-day intensive in Hamilton, Victoria  (February 25 – March 1). The unit is offered at a postgraduate level through Deakin University, School of Medicine and provides continuing education points for nurses, doctors, vets and social workers.  It can also be taken as a standalone subject.  HMF701 is also the prerequisite for eligible health professionals wishing to become AgriSafe clinicians.

Scholarships are now available and are aimed to financially assist people who do not have access to financial support from either their workplace or other funding agencies.   One scholarship is reserved for a suitable agriprofessional or farmer. Scholarships will be open to applicants who enrol in the Graduate Certificate of Agricultural Health and Medicine H522. Scholarship applications close November 18, 2012.
